Hopefully someone can help:
Is the below linked pre-mixed (50/50) coolant the same quality as the OEM Volvo coolant?
Aside from being diluted, can anyone please confirm that the coolant itself equivalent to OEM coolant?

Aisin ACB-003 coolant is non-silicate, non-amine, non-nitrite, and non-borate coolant with hybrid organic acid technology (HOAT). This coolant is designed and recommended for aluminum engines but can be used in varying applications.
Not seeing anything about it being 'phosphate-free' though?

If not equivalent to OEM, are there other pre-mixed (50/50 diluted) coolants that are equivalent to Volvo OEM concentrated coolant?

Thanks!

Thanks!
Modern volvos have been using HOAT coolant whose specifications hasn't changed much in a very long time. As long as you don't mix non-HOAT coolant with your current HOAT coolant, you're fine.

There's no need to overthink it.

Perfect, thanks! Exactly the confirmation I was looking for.
I suspected that was indeed the case, but wanted to play it safe.
